Have You Ever Convinced Your Landlord To Pay For An Upgrade?

Have You Ever Convinced Your Landlord To Pay For An Upgrade?

There’s plenty you can do in your rental to make it more like a home without spending a ton or running afoul of your landlord, but if you want some more substantial upgrades or changes, you’ll need their help. Have you ever convinced a landlord to pay for upgrades or renovations?

Maybe you’ve been in your apartment for a few years, and it badly needs a new stove, or you’ve considered springing for a garbage disposal. Maybe some new bathroom fixtures are in order, or you’d like a new fridge. In many cases, a landlord will recognise the value of those upgrades and be willing to split the costs with you — or even cover them completely. Have you — if you’re a tenant — ever gotten a landlord’s hand with upgrades? If you’re a landlord, when are you willing to help and when won’t you?
